Our History: The Lancaster Red Rose Chapter of USA Dance was established in February 1991 under the umbrella of the USA Ballroom Dance Association (USABDA), which is now known as USA Dance. We are part of a national non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of ballroom dancing as both an art form and a recreational activity. We function exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.

We are happy to perform dance demonstrations in local business or community venues. Our dancers are not paid for their time, efforts or gas, but we would appreciate your tax deductible donation to our chapter. All financial donations are used to help offset chapter operating expenses and to promote ballroom dancing in our community. Contact us at for further information.
